Jaguars’ Ace Sanders takes a leave of absence while he faces a suspension

Jaguars wide receiver Ace Sanders has decided to take a leave of absence while he faces a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

Jaguars receiver Ace Sanders said Tuesday night “personal issues” will keep him away from the team when training camp opens Thursday and that he also faces a four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse program.

“I’ve decided to go seek help, get [the] attention that I need – hopefully somebody can help me out,” Sanders said. “I should be OK; I just want to get better and come back and be ready to play.

“Sometimes life hits and it’s hard.”

We certainly hope Sanders gets the help he needs and gets back on the field soon.
